EU Stakeholders Meeting on the EU Timber Regulation
Brussels, 9 November 2012
The European Commission is holding a stakeholder meeting for companies that will have to comply with the EU Timber Regulation on the 9th November.
The Commission will discuss with stakeholders what clarifications it intends to publish to make it easier for “operators” (companies introducing timber/timber products on the EU market) to understand what is expected from them in terms of a Due Diligence System.
FSC will be represented.
Companies/others that want to participate or follow it via the internet are advised to contact:
Martine Dziamski: Martine.Dziamski at ec point europa point eu
An introduction paper will be published on the Commission website two weeks in advance.
